New Hampshire Loves Caitlin Clark

The New Hampshire economy is challenging, just like every other state in the country. However, we are getting a big boost in one area because of WNBA star Caitlin Clark.

The Caitlin Clark Effect Has Hit New Hampshire

The NH Lottery Commission sent out a press release about the increase in WNBA betting, and how there have been $300,000 in New Hampshire bets during the first week of the season, which only started on May 14, 2024.

Caitlin Clark may even inspire you to bet on her to win.

Caitlin is SO FUN TO WATCH.  Even though the Indiana Fever lost this game to the Los Angeles Sparks on Tuesday, May 28, 2024, Caitlin had a 30-point game, which is a season best for her, according to ESPN.  I feel pretty confident that she will break that record this season.  Remember when she scored 35 points against Northwestern this past February?

One three-pointer after another, after another, after another.  She makes it look easy.

New Hampshire Students, Teachers, and Schools Will Benefit

You might be wondering where the money goes when you place a bet with the NH Lottery.  According to the NH Lottery, 60% of the money collected goes to payouts for the lottery players.  That's you and me, kid.  28% goes to support education for the state. I wonder if the lottery would ever consider taking some of that revenue and putting it in a fund for New Hampshire homeowners for real estate tax relief (I'm just spitballing here)?

What Will Caitlin Clark Do for New Hampshire in the Future?

Caitlin Clark's impact on New Hampshire will have a ripple effect long after she has put the sneakers away.  The girl is only 22 years old.  She is just getting started.  If she is having this impact at this stage in her career, there's no telling what she's going to do for the state in the future.  I bet on her all. The. Time.  As much as I loved (love) Tom Brady, I never felt the enthusiasm for him that I do for Caitlin.
